I love horror games(as strange as it may seem,everyone likes being scared)
as for the japanese horror games,I have the Fatal Frame series-Forbidden siren-Kuon.
If you thought that you havn't got the scare of your life then you should play those(my friend recently bought forbidden siren 2,she couldn't bear its horrors so she returned it to the store...)
I've finished FF1&2 and Forbidden siren,and waiting for a chance to finish the others.
This kind of horrors based on an old rituals,occults,and malevolent spirits waiting for a victim(kinda reminds me of *The Grudge*bbrrrrr..)is really interesting and creepy....
so...what do you think?

I like Sweet Home on famicom, though it's lost most of its impact with age. It's still a lot of fun, though. And of course, I love the Castlevania series (although those really don't count as horror, do they?).

I remember there was a game based off of The Ring for the Dreamcast. I played it for like half an hour and never picked it up again. Well, i've played most of the Resident Evil games and got half way through Fatal Frame but I'm not much of a horror game person.

Obviously Resident Evil 4 is my favorite since you're actually in full control of the character. Though RE4 was more of an American oriented game.

Endless Darkness... because of those damn SANITY scenes... They made me paranoid of the whole game and there were two scenes that basically made me scream like a little girl.

1. Bathtub Scene, I still remember jumping and screaming who ever remembers this... GOOGLE Endless Darkness and Bathtub. LOL
2. The hanging.... Was not scared of the hanging, what came after suprised and scared me.

When I play games, I play it dark and loud... LOL.

First game I ever played that scared me or gave me a sense of fear... DUNGEONS OF DAGGORATH for the Tandy Computer (It's and RPG that has no hitpoints, just the heart that beats faster and faster, till you die!!!!) LOL... try it out.

I've never been able to get into japanese horror. I think it's because I don't have the same cultural reference that they do. I have the culutural background to find things like "Excorcist," but old shinto shrines make me think of little girls in yukata (sp?), not necessarily ghosts and demons.

I love alot of what they've done visually with tradtional american horror, like Castlevania: Symphony of the Night or Vampire Hunter D, though those really aren't horror per se, just horror inspired. I absolutlely love that gaudy gothic/victorian visual kei imagery.

genjiworks, you mean Eternal Darkness. I played it too its a great game. This thread is supposed to only be about japanese horror games, though. Eternal Darkness was made by Silicon Knights if i remember correctly.

Yeah, Silicon Knights made it, I believe they're in Canada if I remember correctly and it was quite a good game, I've actually still got my fingers crossed for a sequel sometime.

As far as the Japanese themed horror games I'm a huge fan of Silent Hill and I have enjoyed the Fatal Frame games, as well, unfortunately I could simply never get into Siren, dunno why but I could never finish it.

Japanese games... Hmmmm... Splatter House? Anyone remember that, I thought the game was freaky in a scary sense. I mean there was one level where you had to fight through a womb... and an army of fetuses and bubble fetuses where chasing you. That was morbid.

Recently... maybe Fatal Frame, because I hate hearing things... and the only way to see them is through a camera... I get more excited and anxious. My kids saw me played it and had nightmares for a month... Now my wife bans me from playting these games ever again... -.-

There was also this Yaoi hentai game I saw.. that had me screaming out of the room... Hmmm..

FEAR counts, doesn't it? I'm pretty sure the developers had the new sort of Japanese Horror in mind when making th game.

Great game, FEAR.

As a side note: Counter-Strike seems utterly childish after playing FEAR's multiplayer. All the extra options really make FEAR shine.

Siren and Silent Hill are pretty bomb! O.o Can't get enough of them.
